John Cayley

John Cayley is a writer, theorist, and pioneering maker of language art in programmable media. Apart from more or less conventional poetry and translation (Ink Bamboo, 1996 and Image Generation, 2015), he has explored dynamic and ambient poetics, text generation, transliteral morphing, aestheticized vectors of reading, and transactive synthetic language. Today, he composes as much for reading in aurality as in visuality. Cayley's selected essays are recently published by Bloomsbury Academic as Grammalepsy: essays on digital language arts (2018). The book is also available Open Access from Bloomsbury Collections.
